Consider heat conduction in a flat, circular disc of thickness h . The disc is insulated on both its top and bottom surfaces, such that heat can flow only in the ( ) , r plane (using polar coordinates). By applying conservation of energy to an element of sides r , r , and thickness h , show that the disc temperature is governed by the 2-D diffusion equation in polar coordinates: + + = 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 T r r T r r T a t T where c k a =...
